4. Adding the legs, feet and facial features

This is a long one so you might need a cup of coffee!

5. Adding the Tail

Pull uses the magic of suction and adds the tail in a somewhat amusing way. It got a great reaction from the live audience.

6. Finishing Touches

To finish off Paul adds a quick trip for getting a mud effect covered board and goes around with a little shading just to bring the little character to life.
